Negotiations on a $1 trillion-plus catchall spending bill have hit a snag over former President Barack Obama's health care law.

GOP Speaker Paul Ryan and top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi are at odds over a demand by Democrats to use the must-do measure to guarantee that payments continue to flow under the health care law to help low-income beneficiaries with out-of-pocket costs.

Pelosi is insisting the those cost-sharing payments be addressed in the legislation, a demand she made after President Donald Trump threatened to cut them off as a negotiating chip. Aides said Pelosi and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney sparred over the payments in a Tuesday phone call.

Pelosi wants the payments addressed in the catchall spending bill but Ryan told reporters Wednesday that "we're not doing that."
